I have not been able to get the saw blades to track properly since I bought the saw. The only way I can get the blade centered on the upper wheel is if I tighten the tracking adjustment as far in as it will go. However, the blade seems to ride right on the front edge of the lower wheel no matter what I do.
I spent time last week trying to make sure the two wheels were coplaner. I had to shim the lower wheel out about 1/4 inch. But I was concerned about the lower wheel hanging off the shaft that far, so I removed one of the spacers so it's only shimmed out 1/8" now.
It seemed like it was tracking better till I put a new blade on this week. Now it wants to track on the front edge of BOTH wheels? I have the upper support bearing behind the blade adjusted as far forward as it will go and it's still 1/4" behind the blade.
I even tried to loosen the bolt going through the riser block to see if I could shift things, but it has pins that keep it from moving.
What am I doing wrong?
